Avacado green, mission brown, wheat and retro orange were very popular colours in the 70's. They were used in carpets, curtains, homewares, fabrics and wallpapers. Orange was present in shades of burnt orange, coral, ochre and sunshine. There was once a time when retro orange was a feature colour, used along shiny laminate bench tops, draped along curtains, wrapped around linen lampshades and printed all over wallpaper.
